The victim this time out is Martin `Mugsy` Heidel, a West Coast underworld boss who loses all his Hollywood friends when he is accused of murdering a small-time bookie.

When Mugsy plows all the profits back into the hotel, his criminal bosses are not pleased and Heidel is `retired` in a hail of bullets from an unknown assailant in revenge.

This isn't really a bad unsold tv pilot, though the lack of a conclusion is probably the main reason for being unsold.
